The Longest Border

I really shouldn’t be complaining because it is my fault that I haven’t devoted time to finish the border for the Stories from Snoqualmie Shawl.  There are twelve repeats of the same section.  After a little while you want something different and I feel like I’m forcing myself to keep going.  I only have three more sections.  I’m not giving up.

The rest of my time has been spent trying to open an Etsy shop with some of the yarn I’ve dyed.  It’s a lot to think about and there’s lots to prepare before anything can happen.  My husband has been so wonderful and patient with me.  If you would like to take a look please stop by at www.etsy.com/shop/robinroostshop.   I only put up eight skeins and three have sold already.  I’ll be putting up another three tonight and some more tomorrow.

I started to read Brooklyn by Colm Toibin.  I do like it so far and it’s a nice easy read.  I love books where at least some of the setting takes place in Europe.  I lived in Germany for a year while I was in college and absolutely love the history and architecture.

Hopefully next week I will be onto a different section of the shawl!

Joining Ginny!

  1. I didn’t do the last repeat of the border. It seemed like it was plenty big enough and I was ready for a change by then too! So you’re almost there. The garter stitch part goes pretty quickly. You’re going to love it. i have been living in mine. So warm and cozy!!!! Can’t wait to see my yarn. Yippee!!
